We are thrilled to announce our first weekly winners for this summer’s La Costa Instagram Contests! We saw some fantastic photos come through and struggled to narrow it down to three finalists to present to our panel of judges, but the judges have made their ruling and The Week 1 Winners are…
#LACOSTASUMMER: @azizah02′s Taste of Summer
#LACOSTASPLASH: @willcoxmariacarmen’s Tennis Shot
Congrats to our two winners! We look forward to receiving an email from you accepting your La Costa Signature Gel & Lotion.
All applicable photos have also been entered into our Grand Prize Entry to be selected at the end of summer.
We do want to remind all future contestants of the rules as there were some incredible submissions that came through that we weren’t able to include due to rules and regulations:
- Submission Date (date of upload) MUST be within the Contest Period timing (June 1 – September 4, 2013). We are loving seeing fantastic photos tagged with the #LaCostaSplash and #LaCostaSummer hashtags, but photos that were uploaded to Instagram any earlier than June 1 are not applicable to the contest.
- Only Entrant can be identifiable in photo (and entrant must be 18 years or older). Whether you blur, shadow/silhouette, or show the backs of additional people in the photo, we’re fine with this, but cannot accept entries of multiple identifiable people.
- Correct use of hashtags* – #LaCostaSplash only applies to photos taken on La Costa Resort grounds during Contest Period. #LaCostaSummer can be taken anywhere (just needs to depict what summer means to you). Please only use ONE hashtag per photo.
- Only ONE PHOTO ENTRY PER DAY Additional photos will be void from contest.
*As this was week one, and we identified rules may have been vague, we were flexible on entries. For future entries, we can only accept one submission per entrant per day and submissions may only have one hashtag or the other.
